This is a case to case basis. Others may need more frequent visits. People with very little risk of cavities or gum disease can do fine seeing their dentist just once a year. People with a high risk of dental disease might need to visit every three or four months, or even more.

Dental x-rays are a common diagnostic procedure that is considered extremely safe. Digital dental x-rays have very low doses of radiation, producing just a fraction of what you are exposed to in other imaging procedures.

Sweets, Yes, – if you do not clean your mouth thoroughly after eating sweets or sticky food
Ice – no evidence to our knowledge that it will damage teeth.
The best way to whiten teeth is at a “lower temp” (or lower concentration of whitening gel) over a longer period of time. This results in a deeper penetration of the tooth and a more permanent color change. This is because the higher concentration in-office whitening gels tend to dehydrate the tooth, causing a rebound effect (tendency to return to the original color) after about a week. Dehydration is much less likely to happen when you whiten with custom-made trays since the whitening gel isn’t so concentrated.
Since there are several ways to whiten teeth. As whitening is temporary and expensive, it is best to discuss your options with your dentist.
Our patient-centric approach gives you the freedom to choose if you prefer to see one particular dentist for your check up.

Mini Dental Implants – It’s a Small Wonder
Imagine this: You visit your dentist at 9:30am, let him help you with a mini dental implant procedure that requires less than two hours, then you go out and meet your friends for lunch.
You find that you can eat comfortably, have a great conversation, laugh and talk with confidence.
You also recall that it was a painless procedure, hardly any surgery and the price was so affordable.
This is all too good to be true, you say. But, it is true. And it’s been happening to thousands of ordinary folks who decided to give the procedure a shot.
They have all benefited from the application of mini dental implants (MDI), whether for long-term support of structures such as crowns and bridges, or to stabilize dentures, especially loose lower dentures.
